Meet the 2022 Dogs of the Dow
Every January, one of the best strategies is to invest in the top Dogs of the Dow.
For 2021, the Dogs of the Dow returned an average of 16.3%, as compared to the 20.8% average returns on the Dow Jones. In 2020, the Dogs lost about 12.7%. In 2019, the Dogs were up 20%. In 2018, they were up about 1%, but still beat the Dow, which fell close to 6%. In 2017, the dogs were up 19%. In 2016, they were up 16%.
With the strategy, you simply invest in equal amount into each of the 10 dividend-paying Dogs of the Dow. By year end, you cash out and start all over again with new Top Dogs.
While you can always just buy the Dog stocks, you can also trade long-term call options, which could help produce bigger returns.
However you decide to trade the Dogs of the Dow, here is the new list for New Year 2022.
Again, you’re simply diversifying among these top 10 Dogs. Throughout the year, you get to collect dividends. Then by year end, you cash out of them all and start the next year fresh.
